My Symphytum officinalis is 5 or 6 foot tall before it falls over.

Then I have a blue one that's 2 foot or so and a ground covering one at about 1 foot.


There are a great many species/varietes/cultivars

Hi Lyn. They're woodland plants, deciduous shade and not boggy. They grew like weeds in my previous garden but it's uphill al the way here. The soil is much stiffer here but not really clay.

Lovely things. It took 3 tries to get them established but worth the effort.

Yes WW. Eranthus hyemalis, aka aconites.

not Aconitum species aka monkshood.

Nice pic. I'm ready for it all to start now, 

Pruning an apple tree

You could be right about that large branch being from below the graft Bob.

Pruning an apple tree

Hi MJ. I'm no apple tree expert so listen to any that are. 

However, what I would do with that is remove the entire branch that starts low down on the right. Back to the trunk. If you look at your marked cuts there won't be much left in the way of productive growth on it and it would balance up the shape.

Also, cutting off ends of thick branches like that can lead to die back or long straggly regrowth and looks ungainly at best.
